    SRP: £19.99


    Just like the Peter Kay stand-up DVD, as this is a one man stage show there really isn't much to talk about image-wise. If anything, the image here is even more static than the Peter Kay DVD - the entire show is Lenny standing or sitting on stage so you get his face, his blue suit and a dark blue background, there isn't much that can go wrong here! The transfer is presented as an anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 widescreen image, the colours are very vibrant and detail levels are high. There were some slight mpeg artefacts in the blue graded background but I only noticed this once and it wasn't significant enough to be of concern

    The Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtrack here is perfectly functional for what is required. There is no surround and no LFE but you weren't expecting any were you?

    The only extra on this disc is an interview with Lenny Henry, co-writer Kim Fuller and creative consultant Simon McBarney (21m14s). This is an explanation of how they came to develop each character and the idea behind the character based one-man show. It is relatively intellectual for a comedy DVD and if one is looking for additional laughs, this is not the place to come!
    Lenny Henry Live: So Much Things To Say Extras


    Lenny Henry's So Much Things To Say shows that Henry still has more talent than most of his younger rivals in the stand-up business and he's certainly not ring-rusty after an eleven year hiatus. Having said that, this is bordering on a theatrical production rather than a barrage of gags so your appreciation of this DVD will depend on how you like your comedy and Henry's style.
